Mine was a decade ago... he left around this time then, in fact... but a decade is so long sometimes I barely can believe I did have anyone, especially as it was one of the very few times I was somewhat lucky in life (but not so much if it lasted 7 months... still, better than nothing?)

Life was so much easier in that little time, too... I so often feel so overwhelmed alone... couldn't even continue on to uni after he left (was already going to quit college before his entering my life made it so much easier I finished it, but then exited soon after college finished, as if it was some assigned mission :?)

I've been... rotting alone for a whole decade... my sister was so much luckier, it seems, hers lasting over a decade despite him being even older than me (could be her child being the glue, but it doesn't seem to be an especially dysfunctional relationship to me... unlike every single one I've ever experienced... sadly even my only romantic one kind of was, as he was on the spectrum too and his outlet when frustrated, which seemed to happen often and without much reason it seemed to me, was to bang his head... other than that, didn't talk to me much, which I suppose is an ingredient to a relationship's dissolution... he was the one who wanted to leave...)

17 years ago for me, but we're still friends.

Me too! This was in the mid 90s. This was not a gay relationship. I don't think at that time I knew what being gay meant. I met a girl who was 3 1/2 years younger than I am. There was a lot of things I didn't know or wasn't aware of at that time.

I'm on four, but hell, looking back I've only ever been in love with one. Some of the others were just online chatting/cybering until they got bored/figured out I'm a mess who needs to socially recharge way too often.

Yes, my partner passed away a decade ago. It was a pretty good 15yr run.

I've changed so much since then that I thought it best to do it alone.
